Ol’ Man River Moonshine BallSeptember 16, 2016, 7:00 pm-September 17, 2016, 12:00 am
Ol’ Man River Moonshine Ball debuts September 16, 2016 as Memphis will be blessed with an unusual glow on that evening.
Celebrate this resplendent evening when a positive light will shine on Memphis. This date is B.B. King’s birthday and the all-knowing Farmer’s Almanac assures us of a full moon, a harvest moon and an eclipsed moon (that afternoon) for a luminous night to remember.
We will dine by the light of the silvery moon on the Gibson Guitar Factory Terrace in the Sky, downtown Memphis. Fireworks will illuminate the sky from the rooftops of our neighbors.
When The Blues Ball “left the building” with B.B. King. . .the Moonshine Ball came rockin’ in, howlin’ at the moon, and slippin’ through the back porch door. . .
Buzz Aldrin, the “moon man” himself, is among our illustrious Honorary Chairmen. He is a long-time friend and supporter of Memphis Charitable Foundation, having attended The Blues Ball many times.
